This hotel is a good spot for a one night stay in Barkerville, but I wish we would have stayed outside of the town. The two biggest issues with this hotel were the black flies that invaded our room and the customer who used the shared bathroom that we were sharing with family members in another room, not with him. The
innkeeper, Saya, is so incredibly fussy, one would think she would note this in her list of rules for the hotel. During the stay I felt more like an interloper than a guest. I did not appreciate the pressure to eat my breakfast fast, pay, and get out. I'd suggest a stay outside of town. Barkerville is a great place to visit, but after 7 pm there's nothing to do. Tea in Saya's parlor wasn't my idea of a fun evening, especially at the rate she charges.
